She was one of a kind, she always had a smile on her face and a golden heart. I haven't seen Rita for a lot of years but I have known her all my life. Rita, you will never be forgotten. You were a soulful, energetic, funny beautiful lady inside and out. Fly high into the heavens girl!! You will be greatly missed by many!!

Dear Janet and others, I am so sorry to hear of Rita's passing. Bless her heart, she fought the good fight. I have known her since I was about 13. Would see her off and on. Always loved her pretty hair and her sense of humor. I remember when she worked at the Peter Pan ice cream store, my sister worked there too. Rest peacefully, Rita Sue.
